This coming weekend at the Packard Campus Theater (19053 Mt. Pony Road / Culpeper, VA)

Everything new is old again at the Packard Campus this month as we showcase this coming weekend three more “film from future past,” films once made and set in the far-off future which, now, are just our yesterdays.

“Metropolis” (1927):  Friday, September 2, 2022 (7:30 pm)

Director Fritz Lang’s take on where humanity was headed. The story is of a Utopian society that goes too far. B&W, 153 minutes. Musical accompaniment by Ben Model. Set in the year: 2000.







“Things to Come” (1936):  Saturday, September 3, 2022 (2 pm)

A decade long second World War is predicted that, sadly, we know partially come to be true… but what of the rest of the future depicted in this adaption of the H.G. Wells novel? B&W, 108 minutes. Set in the year: 1940.







“2001:  A Space Odyssey” (1968):  Saturday, September 3  (7:30 pm)

Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece accurately shows space travel and with the world at the brink of the first man on the moon predicts a future in space that is still yet to be. Color, 142 minutes. Set in the year: 2001.

“2001” was added to the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry in 1991; to learn more about this film, click here to read an essay on this film from the National Film Registry website.
